The Holidays are closer than you might think and shopping for your favorite gadget junkie can be tough. Here is a really cool gift for either yourself or someone else. It’s called the AppSpeed Monster Truck by Dexim that uses your iOS Device (see compatibility chart below) to control it by either a traditional touch user interface or your devices gravity sensor to direct the monster truck. The Big Rig Semi Truck comes in two colors, red or black, and is jacked up with huge monster truck wheels and tires. The truck has 360 degrees of movement and will operate up to 50 feet indoors or out. All you have to do is pop in the RF Transmitter that comes with the Monster Truck and charge it up. Then head over to the Apple App Store and download the free Dexim AppSpeed Monster Truck App.
